Product Description

Reeds Maritime Meteorology is written primarily for serving and trainee deck officers, those studying for certificates of competency in merchant ships and for fishermen. It provides descriptions of the elements and forces which contribute to maritime meteorology and the principles which govern them, and deals specifically with:

  • weather forecasting at sea and the use of fax, navtex, and satellite technology
  • ocean currents and swell
  • tropical revolving storms
  • the development and distribution of sea ice
  • weather routeing
  • passage planning
  • the management and care of cargo in heavy weather (ventilation, cargo sweat, spontaneous combustion etc).

There is an extensive glossary, revision questions at the end of each chapter, and a fold-out chart of ocean currents as well as numerous explanatory photos and diagrams. For this new edition, the content and website section has been updated.
